Pietro Chiesa Fontana Arte Sculptural Glass Vase

$1,200

About

A nice folded glass form and function design. This piece appears to be an early example of its' kind. It's sort of light textured on the outside and smooth on the inside with a yellowish / butterscotch hue. Great with flowers or by itself as an objet d'art. Blind stamp on the inside of the rim "Fontana Italy".
